The Oyster Point Hotel was the PERFECT place for our 120 person wedding. The venue is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food/drinks were amazing.
We worked with Billy Murray from the very beginning and he is awesome! He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and very responsive to any and all questions we had.
Christian was our maître de and Anne was our server the day of the wedding. They did so much more though! They set up the entire ball room and cocktail room for us because we made our own centerpieces. They far exceeded our expectations in making our “vision” come to life.
The food was great! The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and people were so impressed that it actually came out the temperature they ordered it! The Peking duck station at the cocktail hour was a huge hit. People are still talking about the food that day.
Lastly, the venue is so beautiful and it was great to use the balcony at the cocktail hour. We had the North Suite, which is included in the package and is used as the bridal suite. It was perfect to hang out in before the cocktail hour and they brought up all of the apps and the signature drinks.
I can’t think of one negative thing to say about the Oyster Point, it was the venue and the staff there that really made our wedding day perfect.
everyone was so professional and extremely helpful , I would work with Alison and Christian , both amazingly helpful and responsive .
I was a little nervous as my big day was quickly approaching. But I shouldn't have worried one bit. Cristian and Allison were there for me every step of the way! Everything was PERFECT! Even the wait staff, they were so on top of things, I was completely blown away. The truly made my wedding run seamlessly and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the Oyster Point Hotel!
The Oyster Point Hotel was a fabulous venue for my wedding day! The hotel staff was very accommodating to our needs to make sure our day was special. Alison was a fantastic wedding planner and was very responsive to our questions and worked diligently to accommodate our requests. Christian was out maitre-d, and he likewise worked tirelessly throughout the evening to make sure everything moved along smoothly.
After a destination wedding on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, we held a small reception for 45 people in the Terrace Room at the Oyster Point Hotel. We decided on the Monte Carlo package because of the excellent selection of food for both the cocktail hour and dinner. We could not be happier with the results. The presentation, food, service and venue made the day perfect. The guests could not say enough how excellent everything was. Nicole and Denise provided the music and were a great addition to the party. Special thanks to Aliison Mercer, Catering Sales Manager and Cristian Soto, Maitre d’ for overseeing our wedding and their efficient staff, especially Anne and Julie. I would highly recommend Oyster Point to make your wedding day a perfect one!
I loved having our wedding at the Oyster Point! It was exactly what we were looking for - an amazing water view, indoor and outdoor areas for the cocktail hour and the reception, a great ballroom, and excellent food, drink, and service. Since many of our guests were from out of town I wanted a hotel for them to stay in and they were very impressed with the Oyster Point! Even better was the service for us - I highly recommend getting the suite the night before so you and your girls can get ready in there - our photographer, videographer and makeup artist were super impressed with the light and space! The sunrise over the river made the start to our wedding day perfect! We had the ceremony at a nearby church, and then headed back to the Oyster Point for cocktail hour! We had our own personal tray delivered to our room which was great, and then we headed down for the party! Everything was perfect and our personal waitress made sure we had everything we wanted! When it finally ended, we had our cake and a bottle of champagne in our suite to celebrate. I would definitely get married here again!!!
We had our wedding 9/19/14 and it was unforgettable thanks to the oyster point! Bill Murray was fantastic and he helped us through everything once we booked. He was extremely helpful - I must have had a new question every week for him, and he was very quick to help and respond! The night of our wedding, Christian the Maitre D was incredible as well. Him and his staff were ready to help us and they did a wonderful job doing it! The bridal suite was insanely nice - gorgeous view of the Navesink and very modern touch. The balcony off the reception room was gorgeous as well, everyone is still talking about our wedding! Definitely recommend this place - please do yourself a favor and check it out!
the oyster point is where you should have your wedding, the staff is wonderful can't beat the view and the food can't said enough about it. please check it out you will be happy you did
From the moment I first walked in the door and met with Allison, I knew this was the perfect place for our wedding. We held our ceremony and reception here and could not have made a better choice! The professional staff exceeded our expectations throughout the planning process and during our entire wedding weekend. Our coordinator Allison was extremely responsive and helpful and I loved working with her as we picked our vendors and coordinated the details of the wedding. She really understood our vision for the wedding and even worked with us to create the perfect signature cocktail! The food was excellent and we received so many compliments from our guests on the good, venue, service, hotel rooms, and general atmosphere. When it came time to the actaul wedding week we began to with with Cristian the Maître d. He was wonderful!! He removed all the stress and worry from the wedding process and allowed us to enjoy every minute of our rehearsal, wedding and post wedding brunch. He treated us, our families, our guests and our vendors with such kindness and consideration. We truely appreciated him! I would highly recommend the Oyster Point to anyone planning their wedding. We are still talking about how perfect everything was almost 2 weeks later. Thank you Oyster Point!
We celebrated our wedding at the Oyster Point on 9/6/14. Throughout the process William Murray was there to assist me with every little question and detail I could think of. If he was out of the office or in a meeting someone else on his team was there to jump in and handle any request that I had. After the food tasting we had high expectations for the food and we were not disappointed on the night of the wedding. Even with a power outage 30 minutes before the ceremony was going to start they tried to keep our entire party optimistic! Christian was our maître d and he was there to make sure things went smoothly the entire night. Within the reception our server, Anna, took extremely good care of the groom and myself along with our fa milies! We couldn't have asked for better service to top off the already amazing night! While we did have a rain storm they allowed us to take over any part of the hotel to take pictures which was truly appreciated. We love Oyster Point as a hotel and would absolutely recommend it to those who are looking for a venue with an amazing view, fabulous food and a great staff!!
I cannot express how happy I am that I had my wedding at the Oyster Point Hotel. From my first meeting with Allison Mercer I knew we were going to be so happy working with her and having our wedding at the OP. Allison was so patient with us, answering all of my questions quickly, and meeting every single one of our requests. Not only is the Oyster Point a beautiful reception space it also has beautiful hotel accommodations for your guests. You have to see it in person to fully experience it's beauty. The food that they serve is also fantastic! This is not your typical wedding menu, this is above and beyond in terms of quality and options. Having been a guest to a wedding here as well I experienced on both sides how wonderful it is to be at a wedding here! Could not be happier with my wedding at the Oyster Point Hotel!
Oyster Point is an absolutely gorgeous venue for a wedding! We loved everything about the Oyster Point; the view, the food, and the service! Everything was perfect on our wedding day and we have the Oyster Point crew to thank for that! Big shout out to Allison and Christian!
Oyster Point is the place to book your wedding venue if you want elegance, professionalism, a sincere staff, and an overall experience that goes above and beyond your expectations. Allison, the Catering/Sales manager, was professional and went above and beyond the minute we first met with her. She was in constant communication with me and answered my every question at all hours of the day in a timely manner. They really went above and beyond to make sure our every need was planned out perfectly! The day of the wedding she even helped me with my bustle when we had some minor difficulties and my mother's wedding dress when there was a last minute spill! Christian was excellent and really saved our night a couple of times with some things that happened beyond Oyster Point's control. Without him, I don't know what I would have done! The atmosphere was phenomenal with the beautiful sights of the Navesink and the cocktail hour was amazing! My entire wedding party was pleased with their service and we were always taken care of throughout the night! I accidentally stepped on glass on the dance floor and Christian was right there with my sister helping me! This is the kind of service you get at the Oyster Point! People are still raving about the service there and how great the food was! If you want a phenomenal venue that your guests will keep talking about, exquisite food, great views, elegant service, and a staff that goes above and beyond...Oyster Point is your place!
The Oyster Point Hotel did the most amazing job on my wedding. Everything from the place to the people who were working really made the day feel beyond special for us, especially Allison and Cristian. Everyone absolutely loved the food and everything the oyster point had to offer! I could not begin to tell you how many people commented on how absolutely amazing the food was! I would highly recommend the oyster point for a wedding!!!!
ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! That’s how our wedding day was. Our wedding day was Absolutely Amazing!
Our wedding was about 150 guests and each and every guest is still talking about what a great time they had. Not a single guest left early. Everyone was raving about how incredible the food during cocktail hour was, to how amazing the entrée’s and appetizers were. When you receive feedback from your guest who tells you that they do not think anyone can top your wedding, or that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to that should tell you all you need to know.
The food, staff, and service were not only perfect for us as the bride and groom but for each and every one of our guest as well. When the staff not only ensures you are taken care of but each of your guest as well that’s what counts. You couldn’t ask for a more attentive staff, our Maître D was Christian was amazing! We met him a few weeks before the wedding and anything we needed he was there. The entire wedding if you thought of anything you might want you had it before even needing to ask for it. They anticipate your every move.
Of course the planning aspect was so much fun from start to finish it was a pleasure working with Allison Mercer. She was incredible and I’m not sure I could have gotten through this planning without her. No matter how many questions you have or how many emails you send her she never makes you feel like you are a pain. She answers you almost immediately if she can and will work her magic to help you out. She was amazing the entire year I was planning!
We could not have found a better venue for our reception or asked for a better staff from start to finish!
We want to say thank you to Christian and Alison for all your hard work and superior service. From start to finish our whole experience with the Oyster point was truly absolute perfection! This is exactly what you are looking for on the most amazing day/night of your lives together!
Bottom line wonderful wedding Christian and Bill where a huge help! My only complaint was the entree's. The lobster studded chicken and snapper were AMAZING at our tasting not so much for the day of. We also got the filet that was perfect. I personally got the chicken and couldnt finish it NO lobster in mine and I was the bride. The fish I heard wasnt like what we tasted either. I know cooking for 6 isnt like cooking for 140 but when you are paying that much a head it better be pretty damn close. All the other food was amazing cocktail hour and the appatizer. I would have rathered pay more for my guests to get the filet and be pleased with their meal rather then go by my raves about the food at the tasting and be dissapointed. We mentioned this to Bill and he offered us dinner for the 6 of us on the hotel and a bottle of champagne. It was a nice gesture yet we will never get that day back.
